COLIN BRAUN TO PILOT NO. 16 3M FORD FUSION AT CIRCUIT GILLES VILLENEUVE

CONCORD, N.C. (August 24, 2009) - Colin Braun will make his first NASCAR Nationwide Series start of the season this weekend at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. Braun will be behind the wheel of the No. 16 3M Ford Fusion, the same car he drove in five NNS events last year. This will be Braun's first race at the 2.71-mile road course. The 20-year-old Camping World Truck Series regular practiced the 3M Ford Fusion for Greg Biffle in this race last year.

"I've been looking forward to going to Montreal all year," said Braun. "I had a lot of fun practicing the 3M Ford Fusion last year but to be honest, it was pretty hard to step aside when Greg got there and watch him race. I'm really excited that I get to run the race this year. It's my only Nationwide Series start of the season so it's important to make it count and hopefully get this team their fourth win of the year."

Earlier in his career Braun spent four years running in various road course racing series, including Pro Mazda, Formula TR and Rolex Grand AM.
